Abstract

Oxidative stress and inflammation contribute importantly to the pathogenesis of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), which is the most abundant and most active catechin polyphenol extracted from green tea, has been proved to have many bioactivities. In this study, the renoprotective effect of EGCG was evaluated in a widely used kidney disease model, the unilateral ureteral obstruction (UUO) mice model. After 14 days of EGCG administration, mean arterial blood pressure, body-weight and obstructed kidney weight were measured. Levels of blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and creatinine (CR) and activities of glutamic–pyruvic transaminase (GPT) and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) in serum were estimated as indicators of renal function. Periodic acid–Schiff (PAS) staining was performed to observe the pathological changes of the obstructed kidney. Antioxidant enzymes and pro-inflammatory cytokine production were estimated to reflect the oxidative
